Warwickshire Pride is a celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) culture. It's an annual event that takes place in the heart of Leamington Spa each summer. Warwickshire Pride is a grassroots, volunteer led event in the spirit of the Pride movement. It's completely not-for-profit and is not a commercial event like many larger Pride events.
To continue putting on our amazing festival for the whole community to enjoy, we need your support. As a small charity our funds are limited. We receive very little funding, almost no sponsorship, and work incredibly hard to pull it off each year. It's becoming more difficult to do that, and as people's expectations for the festival grow, we hope that you'll dig deep and support Warwickshire Pride so that it can continue running.
The funds raised through this Crowdfunder campaign will cover the costs of essentials such as hire of the Pump Room Gardens, first aid provision, toilets and infrastructure that will ensure the festival can continue. Warwickshire Pride provides a safe and welcoming space for LGBT people and the wider community. It would be a shame to lose that.
It's important that smaller, grassroots Prides such as Warwickshire Pride are able to thrive. We hope you think so too and will throw your support behind us so we can put on something truly amazing this summer.
Any profits that are left over after the festival are used to support LGBT youth across Warwickshire and also to help fund the next Warwickshire Pride.
